The Katie Britt for Senate campaign announced on Friday that Maggie’s List has endorsed Britt’s U.S. Senate campaign.

“She will fight hard to stop the Biden administration from imposing the radical left’s socialist agenda,” the group said in a statement.

Maggie’s List is a leading national organization specifically focused on electing conservative women to federal public office. The group promotes female candidates who support fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility and strong national security.

Sandra Mortham is the Chairwoman of Maggie’s List.

“At a time where women make up less than a quarter of United States Senators and only eight of those women are conservatives, electing Katie Britt to represent Alabama in the U.S. Senate is critically important,” said Mortham. “We are proud to endorse Katie and know she will fight hard to stop the Biden administration from imposing the radical left’s socialist agenda on all Americans and get the government out of the way so that our children can enjoy a brighter, safer future.”

Maggie’s List is named after Margaret "Maggie" Chase Smith, a Republican who became the first woman elected to both chambers of Congress. Smith served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1940 until 1948 and then in the U.S. Senate from 1948 until 1972. She also became the first woman to have her name placed in nomination for the American presidency by either of the two major parties in 1964.

“I am excited to announce that Maggie’s List has endorsed our campaign to preserve the country we know and love for our children and our children’s children,” said Britt. “In the Senate, I will fight tirelessly to defend our Christian conservative values, advance the America First agenda and stop do-nothing career politicians from destroying the American Dream. I will always support fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility, individual freedoms, and strong national security.”

Britt has already announced the respective endorsements of the Alabama Farmers Federation’s FarmPAC, the Home Builders Association of Alabama, the Alabama Retail Association, Manufacture Alabama, the Automobile Dealers Association of Alabama, and the Alabama Forestry Association in her campaign for the Senate.

The former Business Council of Alabama President and CEO has been able to raise more funds than anyone else in the race.

Britt has visited all 67 counties on the campaign trail and has challenged her opponents to follow her lead.

Britt has never run for public office before. She is an attorney and is a former chief of staff for retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R), the office for which she is running.  Britt is a native of Coffee County, and her husband, Wesley, is from Cullman County. They now live in Montgomery with their two children.

Lillie Boddie, Katie Britt, Mo Brooks, Karla M. Dupriest, Mike Durant, and Jake Schafer are all running in the Republican primary for Senate. The winner of the GOP nomination will then face the winner of the Democratic primary in the Nov. 8 general election.

The Republican primary is on May 24.
